Meander the dirt roads converging at the general store, where tall tales flow freely. A young parson from the Northeast arrives and receives an education from the mountaineers far beyond his preacher schooling. The unsolicited courtin assistance pushes his patience to the limits. Laugh with six brothers as they unconventionally live balancing compassion with tomfoolery- gaiety with grief- all while holding fast to a simple yet steadfast faith.A new resident arrives, not fitting the mold of a Greenbed woman- she clings to high fashion and longs for the social life she enjoyed in the big city. Her actions and attitudes alienate the residents from her husbands struggling store until she is forced to put her life into the hands of the most unlikely character in the mountain.The war touched the mountain community in a shocking manner theyd never imagined possible.
